Sometimes we have to take the good with the not so good even if it suppose to be "Good Friday!"

My colon procedure was on "Good Friday".

It was not good time, that I must say... Well, could it have been worse!

I got a nurse who almost put me in a hearse!

Multiple times she could not find the right spot for my IV.

Igrinned and prayed "Oh Lord, please help me!"

Then a guy entered who gets paid to put you asleep…

I just closed my eyes and prayed; I didn’t make a peep!

My doc strolled in the room and told me to roll on my side

I did not know what hit me; I was just there for the ride!

When I was awakened, I was in another time and space

I was told to get dressed if I wanted out of that place

Then I heard multiple fart sounds from the patients next door

The gas was so intense; it almost knocked me on the floor!

When the doc came in again I asked, “How are you doing today?”

He replied, “I’m feeling rather crappy, what else can I say?”

Then he gave me a “Prescription” and told me the news

"You’re getting older my friend! Enjoy life! Now go on a cruise!"

Good Friday will never be the same again! Amen!

I had to laugh. The last time I was getting ready for that procedure where I convinced them that I didn't need any anesthetic and wanted to watch it on TV, my attendant was amused by all the people in the neighboring cubicles who had gone through the gastric removal process required and were farting their butts off. Fortunately, I didn't have any such embarrassing outbursts.

Next time you have to try it without anesthetic like I have--twice. It isn't painful and it's quite educational. I am so glad they no longer do the old-fashioned barium enema. I had one of those and it was painful beyond belief, only to pronounce me quite healthy afterword.

The whole thing was a lot more painless than having to go without meat for all those Fridays because of Good Friday. But those fish frys were pretty good.

Thanks for the laugh, even though it was at your expense.
